About this show

In The Wilderness depicts the struggle of teachers and students in an all-girls high school in the South Bronx in the late 1980's, when the neighborhood was rife with crime, crack addiction and AIDS. Dispirited from the stress of the school year, dedicated young teacher Paul Logan decides that if he can get just one student to be successful, then all of the frustrations would be worthwhile. Carmen Marquez, a smart, sexy sophomore who writes poetry and succeeds in school despite pressures from home and from her neighborhood, seems to be the one Paul is hoping for. This show is presented as part of the Planet Connections Festival.
